Following on from his recent defence success in securing the only across the board acquittal in a multi-handed knife murder trial at the Old Bailey, Mark has now successfully prosecuted a two-handed murder in Cardiff Crown Court. 

After a four week trial before Mrs. Justice Simler, Mark secured the convictions of Kalib Facey and Philomena McDonagh for the murder of Damian Hill as part of a planned robbery.  Mark led James Wilson from CPS Cardiff.  If you would like to read more about the case from the BBC's website click here.

Mark took silk in 2017, following a highly successful career as a junior specialising in serious and heavy crime (both for the prosecution and the defence).  He undertakes a significant amount of private work and has, for many years, been ranked in Chambers and Partners as a leader in the field of crime at the London Bar. Mark is also ranked in the Legal 500 as a leading individual in the field of crime at the London Bar.
